directors, at least one director should be an independent director.
The CSR Rules state that a non-listed public company or a private company, which is not required
to appoint an independent director as per the 2013 Act/ DirectorsAppointment Rules, can have its
CSR Committee without an independent director. Also, a private company having only two
directors on its board can constitute the CSR Committee with the two directors.
http://www.bsr.org/en/our-insights/blog-view/india-companies-act-2013
The board committee is responsible for reviewing, approving, and validating the companys
investments in CSR. Prior to each annual meeting, the board must submit a report that includes

general meeting of the company disclosing issues related to CSR. This will include declaring
composition of the CSR Committee and due approval and disclosure of the policy contents. The
report will also contain details of such policy and implementation initiatives already undertaken

the company, the expenditure by the company meets the 2 per cent requirement as per the Act,
and that the company gives preference to local area and areas around which it operates [Section
135(4b) & (5)]. The Board may decide to undertake CSR activities through a registered trust or
a registered society or a company established by the company or its holding or subsidiary or
associate company under Section 8 of the Act. If the CSR activities are done through a
trust/society/company which is not established by the company, its holding or subsidiary or
associate company; then it shall have an established track record of 3 years in undertaking
similar programmes or projects. In this case, the company must specify the project/programme

agencies though institutions with established track record of at least 3 financial years. However,
such expenditure is restricted to not more than 5 per cent of total CSR expenditure of the
Company in a financial year. The CSR policy of the company must also specify that any surplus

Moreover, the CSR activities that benefit only the employees of the company and their families
shall not be considered as CSR activities.
Penalties for Non-Compliance
As per Section 134(8) of the Act, if a company contravenes the provision, i.e., if the

the mandatory amount on CSR activities, not spending in itself is not punishable.
